Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collections

Every home has hazardous waste. Whenever a cleaner, compact fluorescent light bulb, latex paint, maintenance item or medication is unwanted, it is hazardous waste. Will County offers one-day collections and helps fund a permanent collection site in Naperville. Some items may also be taken to retail outlets for proper disposal and recycling services.
